Try to here ppl out before u form an opinion AS oh and never use a matrix quote again pls. =.= they irritate me.
From one side u could say that Humans are Evil, we kill, we destroy, we hate each other, we commit all sorts of horrid acts. But on the other side we could be good. we save each other, we love each other, we take in children that are unknown to us and love them and treat them as if they were our own... but heres the thing that i think Dark Aztek was tryingto say. Good and Evil are just definitions of actions that humans ourselves may have come up with, what is good and what is evil is entirely fictitious and opinion based.
And then i here u say "hey thats not true, i mean look at murderers, everybody knows that murder is evil, are u gonna say that that's fictitios and opinion based as well?" yeh, when you say that murder is evil and that everyone knows it, ur just saying that the majority of the population believe it to be wrong/evil/bad. Basically how do we know that killing is EVIL or saving lives is GOOD, i mean its all just a stance/opinion we are forced to take on by those who have influence on us (e.g. parents, friends, government, police, religion, God, priests.. etc. ) if we think over it. Evil too most people is anything that they think may cause pain, suffering, things that they fear, things that they don't quite know about, and are yet to close-minded to learn about. ( a common example would be fanatical christian stances against Embryo research)
Good as you would expect is probably the exact opposite, things we think will comfort and ultimately benefit us, things that won't hurt us and that we have reasonable trust in, or that we feel won't hurt us due to certain conditions.
As DA (can't be bothered to type real name, just use this from now on) aptly put it "Good and Evil are constructs of the human mind" or rather constructs of human society. We created this term, how we choose to use it, to an extent was also our creation. "Good" is an opinion that one draws from external influences the same goes for "evil"
But yet if we look and restrain ourselves within these confiens of "good and evil" you could pretty much argue whatever point you want, the fact is, humans are neither good nor bad, no being on this plane of existence is good or evil IMO, only the actions they commit.
Srry to rant to you all, but i find DA's opinion interesting, as i've also thought this way a few times, the fact is. terms like Good and Evil were man made, therefore they are not Sturdy and perfect, in our society "good" can be classified as "evil" and vice versa, as long as you have the monetary quantities necessary to make that switch.. which sorta proves to you what kinda society we live in eh? ^^;
yeh i kno my post has holes in it, but im just trying to express my opinion efficiently. ur free to prove me wrong, its just what i think ^^;;
